of the badgering done in person or over the air waves impacted early voting. here in columbus, the line stretched out of the door and in the parking lot and people waited in line for two hours to cast a ballot. some of the churches loaded up people on buss and drove them to early voting location. and spokesman said this is resulting in a big surge for president obama. and that is why they fought so hard to keep early voting open in the final weekend leading up to the election here in ohio. associated press reported republicans and democrats, democrats lead by six percent. we can show you video of the absentee ballots and republican response to that. spokesman said they anticipated all along that democrats would lead with early voting, however, the lead is not significant as it was in the last election. they say viewer democrats showed up for early vote more republicans showed up. both sides are predicting a narrow margin of victory and lawyered up have observers here in the polling locations. and every vote counts and every vote will be scrutinized. >> steve: thank you for the live report. everyb

. >> and take a look at ohio. the president holds a two-point lead according to a "columbus dispatch" poll leading 50%-48%. also, "the denver post" finds the president leading mitt romney, 47%-45%. >> another reason to be disturbed. right now, willie, mitt romney should be ahead in colorado. he should be ahead -- i'm just saying, he should be ahead in colorado, in virginia. he should be ahead in north carolina. he should be ahead in florida. he is according to "the miami herald" poll. virginia and colorado are two states that really give me pause for the romney camp. >> especially virginia. let's pause for a moment and appreciate how close this race is. we just went through about ten polls all either tied or within the margin of error. >> today, 24 hours to go, you can look at the polls. it's okay. >> they matter. >> i would ask you, mark, about ohio. we've sat here for weeks and said this is really going to come down to ohio. that poll was two points. the president has had some polls over the last week that showed him with a bigger lead. where are you hearing this race is right now? >> it

hopefully tonight. ohio, there was a "columbus dispatch" poll that democrats like to cite which shows that romney overperforming mccain by 22 points. to mccain's 11 points. the county to watch there is hamilton county. the very populated, swing county. this is very tight. early voting showed obama rehead. the democratic advantage is up. that and a absentee ballot wiped it out. >> dana: romney internal showed them up plus two in ohio. michael leavitt, health and human services secretary for bush, he started on the reagan campaign and he was so excite excited. he said you would go to ohio. he said i don't want to go to ohio. nothing happens there. he said you can't win as republican if you don't win ohio. i'm sure he is reminding them of that every day. >> eric: any surprise if romney wins ohio today? and president obama chose not to -- >> dana: biden went last minute today. >> bob: i don't know why he chose cuyahoga county. i think what they're probably trying to do is minimize votes in cuyahoga county. as andrea pointed out to me, suburban counties around it, have been republican, and

[ sigh of relf ] try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. morning because my back hurt so bad. the sleep number bed conforms to you. i wake up in the morning with no back pain. i can adjust it if i need to...if my back's a little more sore. and by the time i get up in the morning, i feel great! if you have

, and we start with mike tobin in columbus, ohio, many still say voters there, mike, will decide of course, who actually wins this election and how it comes back to ohio. >> right. >> certainly does, that's why you have the candidates making the mad final dash in the buckeye state and both of them and the first lady made appearances yesterday. the obama campaign goes into the home stretch enjoying a significant lead in early voting returns, but the romney campaign says it's not as significant as the lead he held over john mccain in this same time frame. they believe they can make up the difference on election day, so, you have both sides going into the home stretch here extremely energized, the ground game, microtargeting of voters, personal contact is unlike anything you've seen in previous campaigns, we caught up with the group, americans for prosperity as they were mobilizing en masse and heading out into the neighborhoods. generally what you see with all of these door knock efforts is a mobilization of the base is the get out the vote effort. what americans for prosperity were doing, t
in columbus, ohio. shannon bream at the republican watch party if des moines, iowa. good evening, shannon. >> reporter: hello, bret. well, republicans here in iowa are hoping that romney will pull off a somewhat unexpected win. there is something down ticket that could help him. in 2009, the state supreme court here legalized same-sex marriage. that motivated and mobilized conservatives and evangelical christians. they had three of the justices that signed on to the opinion removed. a fourth justice on the ballot. that is not all. control of the state senate is control by democrats. conservatives hope to win it back to give them control of the both state houses and enabling them to pass legislation to been a the same-sex marriage. if the evident to get out the vote on the same-sex marriage issue is successful, it could help romney. secretary of state here says there have been very few complaints about the voting irregularities. the biggest complaint is vote whose didn't get the "i voted" sticker. take it now to steve brown in ohio. >> reporter: hey, shannon. yes, in ohio, the polls close
votes done early. richard trumka, the president of the afl-cio was speaking at an event in columbus today, talking about the importance of getting people out to vote. here is why. the obama campaign made it a sfr piece because they believe they can win it and get younger people out to the polls and people out there camp to the polls and president obama has a lead going into the early vote. and absentee, is strong enough, because the republicans believe they'll win in the election day voting. >> peter doocy is live in fairfax, virginia where national polls are showing the race between governor mitt romney and president obama is a statistical dead heat. peter? >> that's right, uma, here in fairfax county today, virginia's largest locality. 1.1 million people live here and barack obama won this county by 109,000 votes in 2008. helping him win the state of virginia, we've seen a steady stream of people walking from the parking lot into the polls, today is the last day in virginia and you can vote absentee in person and since every vote is important in virginia in 2012, asking them what
was in dlcolumbus where the early voting center is outside of columbus. it was the same scene. there's only one center in each county. a lot of people want it to vote early. some had to vote early because of work schedules tomorrow, and that's why the lines are so long. tamron. >> thank you very much in cincinnati. greatly appreciate your time. for the candidates themselves, this is it. right now president obama just landed in ohio, the state where you saw those long lines just a second ago, after a morning stop in wisconsin. mitt romney is headed to his second stop in virginia. the president will close out his final day of campaigning in iowa, the state that pushed him into the national spotlight. mitt romney will make his land stand later today in his home away from home, new hampshire. for both men months of campaigning and hand-shaking comes down to these final events tonight. >> you may be frustrated at the pace of change. i promise you, so am i sometimes. you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. >> if you're tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for change. help us wi
was there today. and our steve brown is there as well live in columbus with more on this enormous battleground. what's the mood, steve? >> well, the polls have closed but voting continues. it is a situation around the ohio state university campus that we're aware of now that if you are in line as the polls close you still get a chance to vote. they will let whoever was in the line part of the 7:30 vote. we started receiving reports that there was a line of over 700 nero -- near ohio state university and one person said it is more like 200. the governor said he was on his way out there to keep folks entertained and keep them company to keep them in line. in this state there is no such thing as extra votes. karl alluded to this a few minutes ago there will be an earlier indicator how this state goes. folks who were veteran political watchers in the state say about 45 minutes in, about 8:15 because the early votes are the ones that get counted and because the obama campaign has made it so central to the campaign strategy that should give them an idea how many votes or what size of a lead the ear
with us? we will go on to brooklyn, in columbus, ohio, on our democratic line. >> i just wanted to say congratulations to obama and his family, and go obama. >> we will go next to miami, florida. >> i just wanted to basically say congratulations, obama. i am proud to be a first-time voter. i think things are really going to change in four years. it is his second time in. i think, to the point that he is not running for reelection, the republicans in congress will -- they will stop stalling everything he is trying to do, and try to give the president a chance to change things. >> steve think this will be different? >> i definitely do. this election had a lot of name- calling, trying to attack the other candidates. people have noticed that, and have reacted negatively toward the. obviously, romney did not win the election. i think people are looking for the positive things they will do for the country, instead of, this guy is going to do this. things like that. i think it is a step forward. >> we are joined from nebraska on the independent line. thanks for waiting. >> thank you for takin
. from columbus, ohio, this is mike huckabee. until next week, good night and captioned by closed captioning services, inc. [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. >>> the first order of government is the protection of its citizens. the first order of the military is to march to the sound of the gun and leave no one behind. this week our commander in chief reaffirmed his pledge to support and protect all americans. >> we are here for you. and we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure that you get all of the help that you need. >> judge jeanine: unless, of course, you are in benghazi. hello and welcome to "justice." i'm judge jeanine pirro. this week cables con
, according to what we are learning. we go live to columbus. mike, what you can report from there? good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ojaioans have been voting early and the returns show that president obama does have a lead here in ohio. the romney camp says they are not concerned, it is mauler than the lead over john mccain four years ago, they believe republicans will show up in greater numbers on election day and close that gap. you have both sides going into the home stretch, energized and optimistic about ohio. the personal contact, the door-knocking, the micro-targeting of vote rez, unlike anything seen in a previous campaign. the goal, to get out the vote. make sure no one from your base stays home or fails to cast a ballot on election day. there is the effort to persuade the handful of undecided voters. >> we are looking for the independents, the folk who is don't understand the issues or are not up on the issues and we are going to knock on doors and give them literature and talk to them and find out where they stand and hopefully, bring them on board with americans for
those votes. we've been to columbus, cleveland. those are the high numbers that the president, scott, is too close to call there tonight my campaign sources say. >> pelley: jan, thank you. the president of course has been working ohio just as hard. it is key to the president's election tonight if he is to be re-elected tonight. if he can win ohio, he can effectively block the romney campaign. and nancy cordes is covering the uniquobama campaign. she's in chicago tonight. nancy you spent quite a bit of time in ohio as well. >> i sure did, scott. the other day was a perfect example. we're five days out from election day. the president spentsdz the you're day barn storming ohio. heads home to the whitehouse to sleep and then comes right back out to ohio in the morning. to give you a sense of just sowch he naifers this one state, he held 101 campaign rallies across the country he this election season. 26 of them, more than a quarter were in one state, ohio. and he wasn't just in the big cities, he went to the suburbs, he went to small towns. and the main reason that the ohio campaign fo
ron claiborne wants to weigh in. he's in ohio, he's in columbus right now and you are there at the secretary of state's office and we know every single vote, every polling place is being watched tonight, ron. >> reporter: they're being watched very closely and, diane, 1.6, 1.8 million voters actually voted early either by absentee ballots or in person going to early voting stations. those will be the first votes counted. we start to get those in about 20, maybe 30 minutes from now. we will get an indication, for example, if there is a high turnout in those early voting areas around cleveland. that would be very favorable to president obama. and meanwhile, as you were saying, the auto bailout has figured prominently in this state something like one in eight jobs are involved in the auto industry and the obama campaign was able to really bludgeon mitt romney with that issue in recent days in a way magnifying romney's attack line saying that those jeeps would be built in china. the response was so overwhelming by the obama administration and auto executives it may hav
herald." the end of the road, clinton stops here. -- clumps here, romney finishes tonight. the columbus dispatch out of ohio, it's decision time. poll hours, 6:30 a.m., 7:30 p.m. the subhead, the last push. a big choice on the government's role is how they decided to headline the subhead. candidates may be close in the polls but their visions are wide apart. just to give you a sam planing of how the newspapers are playing out. as far as our question of why you decided to vote or maybe not decide to vote, there is a website who writes about the idea of those within florida, she's intrusived about those who are not going to vote tonight. she writes in part this. it's true that everybody should vote. but what you'll never hear from the parties is that democracy is better off without voter who is don't do any homework. the rhetoric you hear is about the absolutely no obligation to vote but there are valid reasons to sit it out and among the, if your ballot will an exercise of random selection. you don't feel comfortable with the choices, you might be in the same boat as craig engle. he's a
to campaign. super pacs came in but even then it was two to one. so if you are watching tv in columbus, ohio, you see a lot of negative ads. they were almost all negative. they were quite effective and they were about dean and the auto industry bailout and about policy proposals that were mr. rice, but they are pretty set. >> he would raise taxes on the middle class. we can't forget it was on a level playing field until the very end, even after mitt romney which he needed to respond, we're still not on the markets in ohio. we were still being outspent. but that has a cumulative effect. it's difficult. i share the effort in ohio, but i need to find the same thing as true and the other swing states. it's tough to come back from that. back to your question in a paddy to policy issues and translate in the way people care about, i do think it's a huge challenge for senate with just a lot of people in this room share the same challenge to the extent forgetting partisanship. that she believed in policies that lead to more economic growth and more jobs hurts sometimes to find among current employees
take that remarkable statement with the interview that speaker boehner gave to politico in columbus, ohio, yesterday. we have both republican leaders going in ready to fight. they're not, they don't seem to be chastened at all. >> right. and go back and watch "60 minutes" from this past sunday where they had this segment -- it wasn't the best ever -- but there was an interesting interview with harry reid and membership mcconnell simultaneously told. i think the first interview they've done perhaps ever, and you watch the body language, and you understand why we have a broken senate, why we have a broken congress. the two of them just basically point the finger at the other, show no willingness to compromise, don't feel like they have to compromise because they feel they're winning the ideological war, and they feel that their opponent -- they vilify their opponent saying that they're the ones who are making the miscalculation, they're the ones that are making congress an inhospitable place as far as getting things done. >> and yet there's some evidence that there eventually will be
were watching columbus stumble across america. latino voters, who knew? demographic changes moving slow as glaciers but this one seemed to sneak up on the news media like a sudden thunderstorm. i've been trying to introduce my colleagues to real latinos and immigrants for sometime. i've worked on bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bills and stayed at the table to work out a compromise, even after all republicans had left the table, but the republican party seem much more interested in the imaginary latinos they tried to use as a wedge issue so they craft messages aimed at the very few americans who are not offended when immigrants are referred to as criminals, gang bangers, freeloaders, law breakers whenever they are spoken about in america. the party nominated a presidential candidate who has creative ways to defend latinos. call for the more than -- more than 10 million families and say just support them. celebrate the extreme arizona laws, check. threatened to veto the dream act and let hundreds of thousands of young people who applied for deford action, fear for their futur
rally with ann romney in columbus, ohio. friday with four days before the election, mitt romney and ann romney will kick off the recovery road toward. they will be joined by condoleezza rice, bobby jindal, rick perry, and john mccain. live starting at 7:30 eastern on c-span. >> ok. it documents the coolidge family in the white house years and before. part of the coolidge family papers. we have one box the is just photographs. several boxes of other documents. photographs are heavy. the album should be in the back of the box. here it is. unfortunately, it is on black acidic paper. there is not much we can do about that because we do not want to change the artifact nature of the album itself. some of these pages are separating. this is a photograph of calvin coolidge the day before he became president. he was in plymouth, vt. the visiting his father, doing some chores. this is a press photograph, so he did have the press with him. it took one photograph of him here with his suit jacket on. there is another one without the suit jacket on. >> more from the vermont historical society this we
spent 3-1. yes some super pacs temmins if you are watching tv in columbus ohio you were seeing a lot of negative ads. there were quite effective. they were about the auto industry bailout and policy proposals for mischaracterizing but they were pretty effective. so, we can't forget that it wasn't a level playing field until the end even after the convention when they were available to mitt romney which he needed to be able to try to respond we still were not on all of the markets in ohio and we were being held spent and said that as a cumulative affect. i chaired the effort in ohio but he would find the same thing is true in the other swing states. back to your question how do you take these policy issues and translate them i do think it is a huge challenge and i would suggest a lot of people in the room share the same challenge to the extent of getting partisanship that you believe and policies that lead to economic growth and jobs you will find it's tough to communicate. i'm a former trade representative and i use trade as an example i but suggest to many of you to depend on a glob
